Testimonials

  • “I tell my friends endless stories about Parkside all the time. It was the best school I've ever attended. I don't think I'll ever meet two people as extraordinary as Joe and Claire -- they really changed my life. Thank you, Parkside, for all of your contributions, love, and support! ”

  • “Parkside has a wonderful reputation in the Montessori community of Austin, and thus intrigued us. But what kept us at Parkside is the love and support we felt from the teachers, admin, directors, and community. Our Primary teachers were more than just "guides" -- they obviously cared for my children in my absence. ”

  • “Parkside has been the best gift we could have ever given our kids so they could just be kids. And with Grandpa Joe and Nani Claire watching over them with exquisite love and care. We are forever indebted to you both.”

  • “At Parkside, the respectful way teachers treat and talk to the kids not only shapes their expectations for other relationships in their lives, it also sets them up for a positive experience of learning. There’s a balance of understanding and support, and the benefit of being known by caring, responsive people. We may live in a big city, but Parkside creates a loving, small town feel for every member of the community.
